I was a little upset to see the first shop I did for them had like, I think, 95 questions.

Amazed that it took less than 15 minutes to answer them all. Mostly, exact timings and observations.

Easy-peasy, as long as you pay attention to the guidelines and get any clarification you need before you go do your first one. I think my longest narratives have been one, maybe two, sentences; and that wasn't even required.
Easy reports, uploads, so be sure and take correct pictures. They are nice to work with...I mostly do their big box jobs.

Live consciously....
Yes, they are a snap to complete, but make sure you read the guidelines before heading out, so you catch all the needed details.
With the IPSOS shops, you can use the Mobi Audit app to report most or all of the shop. I usually use it to enter all the info and photos, then look it over on my computer monitor at home to double check everything before submitting it. I open the app and click the start time upon arrival, take the storefront photo (if one is required), and so forth, then save it for later. It's so much easier than keeping track of all your notes and entering the report at home. Plus, being able to upload the photos directly from your phone to the report is awesome.
With IPSOS, I look at each job type on a case-by-case basis. Most of their shops are fairly simple, but some are simple and fast, and some are simple and lengthy. Sometimes their instructions and surveys don't match. I won't do their cell-phone or other technology shops at base price, but there's another of their regular shops that I'll take at base. Some of their fees seemed to have actually gone down lately, so I won't do those. They had a high-end shop a couple of years back that paid well, but I haven't seen that one come around again.

On the plus side, they pay on time, every time, and I've never had to chase them for fees or bonuses. The editors are pretty easy to deal with, and the few times they've had questions, everything was handled quickly and easily.

I learn something new every day, but not everyday!
I've learned to never trust spell-check or my phone's auto-fill feature.
IPSOS have great schedulers in my area, the company is easy to contact by phone if needed, pay is always on time, reports are easy once you have done them a couple of times, and I love their jobs.

You can call somebody at IPSOS? Are you sure?
Most of the e-mails I've ever gotten from IPSOS had the sender's phone number at the bottom of the e-mail. I've called and spoken directly with them many times!

Ah, I think that I am only dealing with their scheduling company. That must be the difference.

BIll Carden has no phone in his tag line. He's a regular employee, I think?
I like them the shops are quick especially if you use the Mobi App.

HOWEVER, I would suggest not taking the pictures inside the app. Just use your phone's camera as you normally would.

This way the picture is saved to your phone. If you take it inside the app, it is supposed to be saved on their server. However, I've found that is not always the case if I have to stop filling out the shop in the app. Since I took the picture inside the app, it wasn't there when I went to finish the shop in the app later.

If I had taken it on my phone I would have been able to load the picture into the app from my gallery.
Every phone is different. When I take the photos (using the app), on my phone they are also automatically saved in my gallery.

GFK was worst low paying company. I also noticed lower payment for some shops at IPSOS. So I am thinking IPSOS is inheriting all the bad things from GFK.
